There is a saying: ‘time flies’.
So many things happened in the last few months: from the engagement of his best friend, his college crush and god knows how many people on his Facebook friend list to broken friendships, the last one year was full of many emotions. He befriended many new people while in parallel, also unfriended many. All through his extensive travels, staying away from home gave him the strength to face new lows in his life. In a nutshell, the past few months were full of excitement, learnings, a lot of takeaways and a pumped up confidence.
However, today, the endless rain coupled with the darkness, startled him and shook his confidence. He was perturbed. Although, considering the recent past, such rains were nothing unusual; still, somehow he was scared. He felt alone and lost.
Amidst a sudden upsurge of emotions, he reached out to his phone, typed her number and was almost on the verge of dialing when suddenly a display of today’s date on the bus running in front, reminded him something abysmal and he momentarily froze. It had been a year since they met. Once a best friend, they both have turned into merely a phone contact now. Rarely do they text and seldom do they talk. Incredulously, he checked and rechecked his phone but the date merely correlated. He felt further nauseated.
And out of nowhere, the next moment, his Facebook feed displayed – “Ah, women are a masterpiece.”
He could not help but relinquish!
